Thankful Thursday

I'm joining Knit By God's Hand today for Thankful Thursday.

I am grateful lately for all my extra work hours! See, I am only officially employed for 10 hours/week. That's 2 hours/day. Because really, that's all I want to commit to. But since school started last month, I've been needed at other buildings for more hours. And those extra hours mean extra pay, which is really helping out as we get caught up on the autumn and back-to-school expenses.

I am thankful to my son for letting me play Plants vs Zombies on his new iPad. I earned my first iPad back when I was a consultant with Dove Chocolate Discoveries (now known as The Cocoa Exchange). Plants vs Zombies was my favorite game, and I played it all the way through to the end. Now most of the game is the same, but there's a lot of ads and 'extra games' (which you earn by doing things like watching ads). So I skip all the new ads stuff and play my game again. Thanks, Jack!

I can't mention that game with out also appreciating my Tiny Tower game on my phone. Some may consider it a sad day when my biggest accomplishment feels like it was building a floor on my Tiny Tower, but sometimes that kind of day just needs any victory I can find!

I'm also grateful for my two delightful children who still enjoy spending time with me as much as I enjoy spending time with them. Today's Jack-ism - "Someone should tape a traffic cone to my head so I can be a unicorn." Better yet? It's the very first thing he said this morning, before he even opened his eyes.

Last but certainly not least, I am so thankful for the good health my family and I enjoy. Each day we wake up refreshed and ready to tackle what we have to tackle that day.

What are you thankful for this week?

HAHA - what a creative little unicorn you have on your hands :)

I love some of the games you can play on phones/ipads. I can get so involved in them - HOURS pass without even noticing :)

Thanks for linking up with me!! Always love seeing the JOY in others lives!
